president obama, memorialized ambassador stevens in a speech to the united nations general assembly. a speech in which the president did not say the words assassination, murder, or terrorism in relation to the ambassador's death. the president is once again blamed the terrorist strike against our consulates and the murders of four americans on a low-budget amateurish, anti-islam, almost 14-minute-long youtube video that had been on line for months before the attack. >> in every country there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening. that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks. the crude and disgusting video that sparked outrage throughout the muslim world. lou: the president did brave the assault on citizenry and blasted a run for propping up the regime is, supporting terrorism, and for refusing to prove that their nuclear ambitions are peaceful. >> just as it restrains the rights of its own people the iranian government continues to prop up the dictator in damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad. time and again it has failed to take the up today to de
president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every tax rate by 20%. to insure the treasury department takes in about the same amount of money under a new system,
and the obama campaign spent the weekend trying to low up media expectations that the president's already won. most mainstream polls do indeed have president obama in the lead, but according to rasmussen, governor romney has an edge among certain voters. 43% of likely voters say they are certain they will vote for mitt romney. 42% say they'll vote for the president. that's a very slight edge, but 15% of voters say they are uncommitted, with a number that large, the debate takes on added importance. new jersey governor chris christie in sharp contrast to the media thinks that romney will pull off a clear win this week. listen to this. >> i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in wednesday night, go out for america, and he's going to contrast what his view is and what the president's record is and view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. upsidedown thursday morning, i'm going to offer an opinion, no matter what, the mainstream media will call it a big win for president obama or a bad loss for mitt romney. the bias, compli
is down, way down in the obama years and down again last month. income now lower by 8.2%. that is a flat-out decline in purchasing power and standard of living for american households, down. but so far, no impact on president obama's standing in the polls. he leads in swing states, ohio and florida and on the question of economic policy, the president leads mitt romney 48-39. now, this is what happens in europe when living standard plunge, rioting overnight in spain and a general strike in greece, this is the people's response over there to austerity. we've got another all-star lineup for you, watch out everybody, "varney & company" is about to begin. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affe seniors today and in the
millionaires and billionaires that obama loves to say, you will have a half trillion dollar shortfall in the budget still. so, where is mr. obama, president obama going to go for the difference? he is not cuts the budget. he has to go to middle class. neil: and raise taxes. >> got to raise taxes on middle class, you are right. neil: do you think he knows that if he is reelected he approaches that? >> he really knows it, whether or not he wants to handle it or thinks he can kick the can down the road for 4 more years, i can not speak for him. but his millionaires and billionaire stuff, to me, this is a red herring, a diversion to keep spotlight off his miserably failed economic policies, the hallmark of any good business of any good manager is the ability to project your, managers who cannot project, are shown the door. looking at obamay record, projections in 2008, and 20009, by his own administration, 3 to 5 million jobs in green energy, all types of projects, local his record, if any manager in private sector had made similar projections and were so far off the way he is, they would
president obama and republican nominee romney essentially in a dead heat. president obama winning by just 1 percentage point as the race enters its final weeks. senior fellow at the american enterprise institute is joining us now from washington, d.c. kevin good to see you. what is the one thing that mr. romney will do to try and push ahead with his economic agenda that he has not been doing and that needs to be doing in previous weeks? >> well, i think that the biggest thing coming up is that governor romney is going to have a chance to speak directly to the american people in the debates and to challenge president obama. you know, one of the untold stories of this campaign for example is that president obama has absolutely no plan to create jobs. that thing they were waving at the convention, his 4 trillion dollars plan was actually just his budget from last year which went -- which went to the floor of the house and senate and got no votes. that kind of conversation is not getting through because of the mainstream media bias. dagen: mr. romney can also speak for himself. he has been wide
the incumbent obama who is running as though the economy during his term didn't happen or at least if it happened, it was the fault of somebody who was president four years before him and what he wants to talk about is the economy he's going to create starting in january 13 which will consist of people having green jobs, making windmills and solar panels. i think the american voters are probably getting a little bit frustrated that no one will talk about the economy as it exists right now, dropping to 1.3% in the second quarter. the united states economy is barely, barely moving. now i think voters want to know what's going on. dagen: what's going on with mitt romney, he can't seem to put together a cohesive discussion about the state of the economy that is resonating with voters. you mentioned in the column that he was talking about trade cheaters and energy independence, which seem wholly removed from what is really happening right here right now on the ground for the american people. >> well, the ads that target china as a trade cheater are aimed at voters in northern ohio and a
's the issue with 2011 here? >> well, look, obama has said i'm going to tax rich people and implying he's not going to tax you. in fact, he passed tax increases on average income americans many many times during his presidency. there are 20 different taxes in obama care that we will all be paying. in addition to that, of course obama's new promise that he won't tax rich people, he's got a new term limit on it, 12 months. only next year, after that we could have a vat or other things. so if you are obama and you intend to allow the bush tax cuts to lapse, so there's a 500 billion dollars tax increase on low income people, middle income people, all americans, you want to talk about anything other than the tax increases that you have scheduled. i mean he's running up trillions of dollars of debt over the next deca decade, according to his budgets. the only way he pays for them since he's not cutting spending is to raise taxes on everyone. what do they want to do? oh gee what did romney pay in taxes four or five years ago? that has nothing to do with anything. we ought to be reducing taxes
romney and president obama are duking it out in the battleground state of ohio today. the unemployment rate there is 7.2% which is lower than the national average, but some argue the recovery has been uneven in the buckeye state. so which way will this state swing? with me now is fox news's bill hemmer who spent time on the ground in columbus. >> and other parts. melissa: this is the state you love. >> yes. melissa: you know it so well. >> my home state too. so i have a personal attachment to it. i think in any normal time 7.2% is absolutely unacceptable for any governor, in any state in america agreed? but lower than the national average and that is why that number gets a bit more attention right now. i find ohio confounding at the moment politically. melissa: yeah. >> in the southeastern part of the state unemployment is at 13%. melissa: wow. >> northwestern part of the state, unemployment is at 4 1/2%. melissa: wow. >> such a difference. melissa: like two different states. >> it is. i will tell you in a moment about why ohio is such a battle ground and how it reflects so much of ame
and distract the country to win by default. look, the obama economic agenda failedded because it was passed. what myth mitt and i propose are very specific pro-growth policies designed to get the economy growing, get people back to work, out of poverty, back on a path of efficiency to the middle class, and we go to the country with the clear choice. it's a choice election where you decide do you want the romney plan, pro-growth policy, gets people on track, or more of the same four years of president obama, 15% poverty rate, unemployment above 8%, 43 months, 23 million people struggling for work. >> is there something in the polls you have to change about your message? scot walker wants to see more of paul ryan of old on the campaign trail? anything you can specifically -- >> scott is a backer of mine, but what at the final analysis when people see the clear choice, the contrast of the two visions, we'll be fine. you know why? because president obama's not working. he's failed leadership, not tacklinged the debt crisis, crammed through a one size fits all government takeover the health care
state, and it is getting expensive. president obama and challenger mitt romney said to campaign in a higher later this week. paul wright and leading the way today trying to rally the troops in an effort to us away the momentum away from the president. jeff flock exclusively sat down with republican vice-presidential nominee. and he joins me now. all right, he did not hold back on his criticism for the presidents, correct? >> reporter: that's right. he is not held back, and there are some republicans who have been somewhat critical of paul ryan's performance, wanted to see a little bit more explanation. the one we are used to with the church, the house budget committee. we have not quite seen that yet. given the fact that here in ohio and other states, a key swing states like florida, some of the poll numbers are starting to move toward president obama. whether or not paul ryan needs to change his approach. what ryan says, his campaign is on track to win. >> at the final analysis when people see the very clear choice that we are offering, the contrast to two different visions a d
harm than good, brenda, especially to the country's bottom line. look, i went through the plan, obama's plan. i went through his tv commercial, three things jumped out that just didn't make any sense, one, he wants to-- one, he wants to cut tax breaks or companies that outsource. when companies outsource the net effect is to create more jobs that were here. people were able to buy goods cheaper because companies are able to make the goods cheaper and buy goods cheaper and spend more money in other sectors, two the other they think he wants to do, he wanted to invest in education and training programs. that's all well and good, brenda and we know that's going to cost millions and millions of dollars, but that's not how the economy works. >> gary b, it's spending more, what does that do to the debt? >> well, brenda, he tries to get up, up, up. when i went to work for ibm 30-odd years ago, the government didn't teach me how computers work. bem caught me. rockefeller's oil company taught people how to drill for oil and gas and the third thing that strikes me that's not going to work. he w
say it, who president obama says he is not a friend of anyway. >> well it's true. what we see is the top 10 to 20% of households who do benefit a lot from stocks going up in the stimulus. they are still spending for two reasons. they get this benefit from the wealth effect but also people in there go to college and they tend to peak in their spending about five years after the average person. so the average person peaked in 2007. we think what is going to happen next year this stimulus will have less impact because these wealthier households will hit their peak in spending. their kids will get out of college and drop off and stimulus i think is going to work a bit, not as much as past qes. then it will fail by mid next year. i think stocks go up a bit. fourth quarter, maybe first quarter. then you could see a bigger crash. note that stocks keep going to higher highs and when they crash, this he go to lower lows. call it megaphone pattern. melissa: just making it is the durable goods order that came out to show durable goods fell 13.2% in august. that was the biggest drop since

while president obama so far not scheduled a meeting with israeli's prime minister he made time to chat up the ladies on "the view" today. to figure out what message he sending, senator john barrasso. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> there are three things the president need to do when he addresses the united nations these things. what are those? >> i wrote an article in "politico" today. it specifically says the president has to acknowledge there is still a war on terror after you see what happened in the past couple weeks when 9/11, with our embassy, with the loss of life of our ambassador. that is number one. number two the president needs to talk about the relationship between the united states and israel. when he says that israel, that the united states always has their back on all issues what does that specifically mean? i think, three, the president owes it to the people of this country to know what his foreign policy is. the president in 2008 laid out a foreign policy that he would hit reset button with russia. i believe that has failed. melissa: yeah. >> he sa

, thanks so much. president obama and mitt romney are getting ready for their first debate this wednesday. some conservatives say mitt romney needs a to do a better job selling his tax message which at times seems a little bit muddied. lou dobbs is here to weigh in. i think that was generous. >> very generous. by the way same can be said and should be said of president obama. what these two men are doing, in their economic policies, excuse me, is truly bizarre. they're both obfuscating a bit. to what end, one doesn't know. when you try to win election, seems to me, and i have only covered six presidents but i think it is better if you're clear and direct as you can be with the voter if you want them to vote for you. that is just my feeling. melissa: yeah. >> unless you've got a record a little like mr. obama where you don't need them to focus in quite so sharply on your record, maybe a little fuzz is good. when you were the guy coming at him, you better be sharp and focused and neither man is, i think entirely achieving his goals. melissa: the president, so much of his campaign focused on

, curtis. again a lot of people are fearful if obama wins re-election that is the path we're headed on. what do you expect to happen to tax rates if he is reelected? >> you know, president obama does want to raise taxes. i don't think we'll ever go back to rates in the 70s of 75%. we've been there, done that. i don't think we'll go back to level. however president obama wants to raise them from 35% today to above 40% starting next year. that would slow the economy. it would reduce job creation and keep us stuck in the low growth, high unemployment environment we're at right now. lori: just for my background sake here in the u.s. we're at about 1% expansion rate. what is the highest level of income taxes you could pay to keep us in a free enterprise capital structure society? >> well, you know, i think it is hard to pick a particular rate because it depend on the tax base and a lot of other things. however, you know, right now we're at 35% and we have no growth. a lot of people point to the clinton years, you know what, we raised taxes and economy grew. go back and look at the in those
beginning to president obama. i hear they're not doing that, but they are diverting money that was promised to mitt romney and diverting it to these house and senate races where they think they can help republicans keep the house and maybe pick up seats in the senate, maybe take the senate. ashley: so they're losing heart in the campaign. >> reporter: clearly there is a trend out there where they are, and the money is starting to shift. now, this trend is lot of people -- these same people that i'm talking to, i will say these are major fundraisers for mitt romney, and they raise for other people, republicans, and not only that, they are pretty tight inside the campaign. what they're saying is they think this trend could be reversed. what could reverse this trend? a really good debate performance. what could expedite -- and that debate, as you know, comes wednesday. what could expedite this trend? a really lousy debate performance. ashley: no pressure. >> reporter: you're clearly going to see republican donors, at least they have the sentiment, they've expressed the sentiment that they are

economic growth and doesn't distort the tax system so much. david: when president obama says it is going to cost the middle class, that's because when it comes time to actually adding up the numbers and seeing if we get the same amount of tax revenue or less or more, you have to make some deductions, one of which is that this will stimulate the economy and, thus, more revenue will come in. the president is not making that assumption, correct? >> there is an assumption out there made by the tax policy center that basically says the only way you're going to pay for this is by hitting the middle class, by taking their deductions away. heritage comes back, another foundation, a conservative foundation, and says, no, they cooked the books on that whole thing. when you look at how all this is going to work out, it is still the decision of congress to figure out which deductions stay or go because romney has knotts detailed those things. part of -- has not detailed those things. maybe getting rid of those deductions don't pay for the entire tax cut, something called dynamic scoring. you assume
, that, those are things that can help the economy. i don't see anything in the obama campaign that will help the economy. he has a debate, they have a debate on concerns wednesday. do you think that he should begin the debate by focusing on his tax plan? >> wiser political people than i will have to make that call but i would certainly think it would be an opportunity to explain to the public that cutting taxes is a way of encouraging people to invest, to expand, hire and that's really what the economy needs. david: finally, the federal reserve board, you have been critical of the federal reserve board and its actions. some people say ben bernanke says, while there is no inflation there is not necessarily an economic cost to doing all of the bond buying they have been doing, the money printing they have been doing. is there a cost and if so, what is it? >> i think there is a longer term risk. i think right now it is doing very little good. lowering interest rates at a time when mortgage rates are at rock bottom, when corporations are awash in fund, doesn't do any good. i think
